  • Kenyan Revolutionary

    I attended a talk by Mr. Githongo in D.C when he “fled” Kenya and was seeking exile status in the U.K. After some research on him and his work…I do not believe it serves Kenya or him well to keep giving speeches at different locatiions around the world at the expense of the host, and at the sametime turnish the name of Kenya. If he is a true crusader like Maina Kai, Rev. Njoka, Late Bishop Munge among others he should do his work in Kenya. Yes there are risks, but those who have fallen knew that. We have many working hard and trying to end impunity and corruption in Kenya.

  • I am no longer excited by Githongo, as i used to in those days when he dealt with corruption head on. I am not sure wheather he is what for a very long time made us believe, a true champion in the war against corruption. His motivation was not to fight corruption after all, he was a man out to make a name for himself, and in all spheres he has failed. He should borrow a leaf from the likes of Okiya omtata.
